It will come as no surprise that for every urban dog, there is a “home park”. A home park is the place you take your pooch on a daily basis to do their business and socialize.  When we first got Tim our home park was Stanley Park.  It was, and still is, my favourite. We have so many friends there, and still meet them for drinks occasionally.  They also have a wicked Christmas party.  Our second home park was Victoria Memorial Park, a great park, but full of drama thanks to the heritage status of the park and some overly zealous neighbours. While we still head to these parks on weekends and when the weather is good, our new home park is now Metro Hall, in Toronto.

While you wouldn’t expect many dogs at Metro Hall, but with the new Ritz Carlton residences and Bell Lightbox, there are actually quite a number of little dogs running around.

Still doesn’t feel like “home” yet, but I think it’ll be a nice place to visit.

Bonjour mes amis!  Well it finally came and went, my favourite holiday: Halloween.  Like Christmas, its always sad when you have to take down the decorations and pack up the costumes for another year.  But its not *quite* over yet, as I haven’t posted any pictures of the festivities!!!

Here is Tim in his aquatic outfit: A Great White Shark!

Here’s a shot of Tim posing in front of some historic gravestones at Victoria Memorial Park.  Spooky!

And  a pic of his best buddy, Cymbal, looking quite dapper in his morning jacket and top hat:
